Mild temperatures and overcast skies that shielded runners from the sometimes harsh South Texas sunrays may have contributed to the record masses that took part in the 27th Annual Longest Causeway Run & Fitness Walk, held here on Saturday.
Nearly 4,000 participants took part in this year’s run which started at the Port Isabel Community Center and concluded at Louie’s Backyard at South Padre Island. The number of participants this year was up some 1,500 entries from the estimated 2,500 who signed up for the event in 2010.
